FDIC to Postpone Effort to Modernize Agency's Signage & Advertising Requirements

April 16, 2020

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WASHINGTON – The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) today announced it will temporarily postpone its efforts to modify its signage and advertising requirements. The agency remains committed to modernizing these rules at a future date to better reflect how banks and savings associations are transforming their business models to take deposits via physical branches, digital, and mobile banking channels.

On February 26, 2020, the FDIC published a Request for Information in the Federal Register seeking input regarding potential changes to its sign and advertising rules. Last month, agency extended the comment period to April 20, 2020.
